    Took my colleague and his wife to the range today who were looking to get their first gun and CHL. I bought several guns to give them a variety to test as well as see differences in recoil, trigger pull, safeties and such. Out of this list the gun the liked the best? The Grand Power p1. It is also easily my favorite. Their spontaneous feedback was very controllable, light recoil and nice trigger and they asked where to buy one. It was interesting to see them noticed the difference right away.

    (the Kriss, Rhino and PMR30 were just for fun)

    That is weird. Looks silly, maybe even ridiculous.
